SOUTH BEND 9-inch and 10-inch "10K" lathes. The very best Manual for this lathe is the one produced in England for the South Bend clone made by Boxford. Unlike the South Bend book "How to Run a Lathe" this 137-page edition concentrates in detail on the 9-inch lathe. I have also added all the known relevant South Bend 9-inch data to give a complete data pack for the machine: - operating instructions - extra screwcutting charts with metric conversions for both the changewheel and gearbox models and other valuable data. - lists of ex-factory changewheels set-ups - the correct South Bend Illustrated Parts Lists with Exploded Component Diagrams - a copy of the best-illustrated and most comprehensive of the South Bend 9-inch Sales & Accessories Catalogue that lists all the options and every accessory ever made. A few mechanical details are different between Boxford and South Bend but the operating procedures are identical.
